Celebrate Difference: A World Autism Day Event is scheduled Monday, April 2, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Willow River Elementary School.
“Celebrate Difference is an event the whole family can enjoy together while celebrating the differences that make all children unique,” said Tracy L. Johnson, CID 3-5 Teacher.
The event is free and includes crafts, read-alouds, games, a bounce house, face painting, a chance to experience what it would be like to have sensory integration difficulties and much more. It is also a great opportunity to come learn more about autism.
There will be a book drive, bake sale, autism awareness items for sale and a dog treat sale (made by students with autism at Willow River Elementary). All proceeds will go towards continuing the CID music therapy program at Willow River Elementary through MacPhail Center for Music.
Families that attend are encouraged to wear blue in honor of World Autism Day. For more information, contact Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org
